US President Donald Trump, who was discharged from the hospital after being treated for coronavirus, said that China would "pay dearly" for the spread of COVID-19.

"It was not your fault that this happened, it was China's fault. And China will pay dearly for what they have done to this country. And China will pay dearly for what they have done to the world. Remember that", - Trump said.

He said that in the United States, citizens will be given free drugs for covid in hospitals so that they can receive the same treatment as Trump himself. He also indicated that the vaccine developed in the United States will appear after the elections. Let us remind you that they are scheduled for November 3. The President explained the timing of the vaccine release by political differences.

Note that at the same time, the US House of Representatives adopted a resolution condemning all forms of anti-Chinese manifestations related to the coronavirus. The document contains disapproval of "all forms of anti-Chinese sentiment", including the expressions "Chinese virus", "Wuhan virus", pun "kung fu" and the closely related English word "flu" - kung-flu, RIA Novosti reported. Recall that Trump often calls the new virus "Chinese" and accuses the PRC of inability to contain the spread of the disease. He also intended to hold Beijing accountable with UN forces.

The United States ranks first in the number of cases of covid in the world.
